There is a significant relationship between animal cruelty and other violence, including organized crime, human trafficking, gangs, and intimate partner/child abuse. Largely because of this link, acts of animal abuse are now tracked alongside felony crimes like arson, assault, and homicide in the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s criminal database. Join Erin Aiello, an Assistant District Attorney in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and a Law Enforcement Trainer with the Humane Society of the United States, as she focuses on interpersonal violence prosecutions and reviews unique considerations in animal abuse cases and strategies for a multidisciplinary approach to help keep people and their pets safe.
